According to Urban Dictionary, the term ‘wonderlust’ means “the desire to be in a constant state of wonder”. It seems that the Tim Cook-led company wants to keep its users in a constant state of wonder with all the new releases planned for this year.

The event will also see Apple announce the official release dates for iOS 17, iPadOS 17, watchOS 10 and tvOS 17, which were unveiled at the company’s WWDC 23 event in June this year.

Apple’s September event is usually reserved for the year’s major hardware launches, including the latest iPhone lineup. This year’s iPhone 15 line-up will include the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
